Many moons ago (…June) I got to finalist level in the Rite Aid Nail Art Extravaganza. They then sent me many polishes and polish related things, included a Velvet Provocateur Nail Kit. Fuzzy nails! I have been staring at this kit for months, trying to figure out how to use it. I finally ran into this beautiful mani by Polished Elegance, and I knew what I had to do! Skittles!
Thus was born black and pink velvet skittles. For some reason my striping tape lines are tiny (too much black) but other than that I’m pretty happy! My thumb was supposed to be abstract…but I’m going to call it a mustache. Even my fingers are partaking in the dreaded event that is “No Shave November”!
The base for this polish is OPI Your Web or Mine, part of the Spiderman collection. I recently won the set of four polishes from Tattooed Nail Girl in a Halloween contest! (Apparently her boyfriend likes glow in the dark nails :-D) This is a very pretty girly pink shimmer polish, which suffers slightly from brush strokes. Shown here is two coats.
Once that was dried and top coated, I added a heart, dots, stripes, flowers, or a mustache using the black polish included in the kit. I sprinkled on the flocking powder, pressed it down, waited a few seconds, and brushed it off with the included brush. One note: DO THIS OVER SCRAP PAPER. You will get flocking powder EVERYWHERE. I also added purple rhinestones to the flowers because…why not?
I am overall pretty pleased with this! What do you guys think? The flowers are my favorite.
